Green on 3fm radio, Holland

Posted at 11am on 05/11/06 by

Just a few minutes ago Green did a fantastic interview for 3fm radio. We captured the stream as usual :)

The interview was done by phone, interesting because Green is in Amsterdam right now.

Session acoustique de Scritti Politti

Posted at 12am on 05/11/06 by

Green packed his guitar and trundled off to lovely Paris in summerlike spring to do an acoustic session at Radio Planet Claire. You can visit the, ehm, rather quaint website and listen to the live stream at the 57 minute mark. Or you can just listen here!

Songs played: Snow In Sun, Robin Hood, Road To No Regret.

… and Green talked a little bit about the past, the new album and his new Scritti band:

Martin Fry likes Scritti

martinfry.jpgJust now on Dutch Radio 3 FM, in the Eighties Request Week, ABC’s Martin Fry mentioned Scritti’s Wood Beez as one his favourite eighties records. In his opinion Scritti Politti is an underrated band. There was also mentioning of the new Scritti album. After that they played Wood Beez. Lovely. Scritti is back for sure.

Gary Crowley – BBC London

On radio BBC London Gary Crowley played The Boom Boom Bap and mentioned that in a few weeks time Green will do an one-hour special on his show. Luckily for all non-UK people the show is streamed at the BBC website. We’ll keep an eye on this and try to capture the special once it’s aired.

You can have a listen here to what Gary had to say, and listen to The Boom Boom Bap as a bonus!

Robin Hood’s iPod

As you can see I was able to get my hands on some quite magical mp3’s. They will probably hit the net shortly, but I can tell you they sound absolutely wonderful. If you like C&P better than A+B, then WBBB is for you. If you liked Boom Boom Bap and Brushed with Oil, Dusted with Powder, then this is a must have set of songs for your collection. Sorry, I am not able to share the mp3’s with anyone since they came from a source that asked me not to share them, but I am sure they will be around the web sometime somewhere very soon.

PS More Scritti Cola transitioning to come…
